I'm really glad we ran this race, because it was a super-fun morning and one of the coolest courses we have ever run on - it was a mix of road racing, cross country, and a very advanced level of Mario Kart! :-) The race took us through the gardens, tunnels, over bridges, all over the golf course, etc. It was a unique event and we would definitely recommend checking this one out next year! The post race festivities are right in the complex and there is a ton of fun stuff to do for families and kids. Despite being a "complex" route, the course was very well marked and the race organization was fantastic. They had a big stage for the awards ceremony, which was especially cool for all the younger guys and gals who ran in the kids race - they all were very excited to get called up to the stage!
Thanksgiving Point is a really neat place in general - check them out on their facebook page.

|Elevation Profile - lots of up and down and up and down and up and down...|
|Several miles of the course wound through these gardens where the tulips were out in full force|

|The golf course part of the route was all rolling hills and sharp turns. It was like a XC style race!|
